* Jan Algermissen
| If you intend the semantics of your resource to be 'a fixed document
| instantiation (bits and bytes)' then use the URI of the resource to
| reference it. There is no point in using the URI as a subject
| locator since the resource already represents the bits and bytes.

You argued in earlier posts that the bits&bytes and the resource
itself are two different things. So clearly there is a distinction to
be made here. What's then wrong with making the distinction?
| The whole distinction between subject locator and subject indicator
| simply does not make sense on the Web.

Now you really are just repeating yourself. I'd like to know *why* you
think this.
